The Mettle of Moral Fundamentalism: A Reply to Robert Baker
Beauchamp, Tom L.
Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal. 1998 Dec.; 8(4): 389-401.
This article is a reply to Robert Baker's attempt to rebut moral fundamentalism, while grounding international bioethics in a form of contractarianism. Baker is mistaken in several of his interpretations of the alleged moral fundamentalism and findings of the Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments. He also misunderstands moral fundamentalism generally and wrongly categorizes it as morally bankrupt. His negotiated contract model is, in the final analysis, itself a form of the moral fundamentalism he declares bankrupt.
